Welcome to the Yes No on Measure K Campaign

#HonestBallots Movement

Your Sonoma County Registrar of Voters printed and circulated ballots for this measure that didn't conform to the law. The registrar ignored our Notice and Demand to follow the law. The legislature makes this a crime. (See: How 25 County Registrars Committed A Crime.)

Do you want to give this district a Thanksgiving surprise? Please call or text me (with #HonestBalllots, Sonoma, 0627840, and your name) at 909-378-5401 right now for details. It's urgent and very time-sensitive.

Are you sure you want vote to support this extravagant measure? It has no accountability.

This campaign was designed by a member of the school bonds cartel. We figured out just the right words to get you to you to open up your checkbook.

We'd also like to introduce you to our partners -- bond lawyers, brokers, wealthy investors, architects, management firms, construction companies, and trade unions. We all stand to make a ton of money on these bonds. Our profits come right off the top, before a penny is actually spent on improving the facilities.

We're not just doing it for the money. We like to show off our work in Architectural Digest and other places where the rich and famous congregate.

Remember, we've taken a lot of risk. We gave money to get your governing board members elected, so they'd be sure to remember us when we came around for a hand-out later.

It's just business-as-usual, here in sunny Corruptifornia.

Please don't read the fine print. That's just put in by the lawyers to make what we're going to do to for you legal.

When you see highlighting in the documents below, it to see the commentary.

Impartial Analysis for Measure K

COUNTY COUNSEL'S IMPARTIAL ANALYSIS OF MEASURE K
Cal i for nia law per mits school dis tricts to is sue bonds to pay for con struc tion, re pair,
replacement, and acquisition of school facilities provided 55 percent of voters who
vote on the mea sure ap prove the sale of the bonds. The Oak Grove Un ion El e men -
tary School Dis trict Board of Trust ees has placed on the bal lot the ques tion of
whether to is sue $9,500,000 in bonds for such pur poses.
Money raised by bond sales may only be used for the pur poses and pro jects stated
in the Bond Pro ject List set forth in Mea sure K, fol low ing this anal y sis. Pro ceeds could
be used to mod ern ize, ren o vate, con struct, ac quire, equip, ex pand, or otherwise
improve ed u ca tional and sup port fa cil i ties. The Bond Pro ject List in cludes a com plete
list of pro jects and al lowed ex pen di tures. As re quired by law, Mea sure K pro hib its us ing
bond proceeds for teacher or administrator salaries or other operating expenses.
The Board of Trust ees has cer ti fied that it eval u ated safety, class size, and in formation
technology needs in de vel op ing the Bond Pro ject List. In clu sion of a pro ject on the
Bond Pro ject List does not guar an tee it will be funded or com pleted. The Dis trict may
seek State funds to aug ment Bond pro ceeds to ad vance the Bond Pro ject List. The
Board of Trust ees will es tab lish the pri or ity and or der in which pro jects are un der taken.
If adopted, Mea sure K in cludes “Ac count abil ity Safe guards” that re quire the Board
of Trust ees to: an nu ally con duct in de pend ent fi nan cial and per for mance au dits;
establish an Independent Citizens’ Over sight Committee; and maintain bond pro ceeds
in a sep a rate ac count in the County Trea sury. Mea sure K fur ther re quires Dis trict
Su per in ten dent to pro vide an an nual re port to the Board on the sta tus of pro jects
un der taken and the amount of bond pro ceeds re ceived and ex pended in each
year.
If ap proved, Mea sure K au tho rizes Oak Grove Un ion El e men tary School Dis trict to
is sue and sell gen eral ob li ga tion bonds in se ries, at dif fer ent times, as pro jects are
un der taken. Bonds of any se ries must ma ture within the stat u tory max i mum number
of years from date of is sue. The in ter est rate on the bonds will de pend on the market
rate at the time bonds are sold, but can not ex ceed the max i mum rate set by law.
Bonds will be re paid from prop erty taxes lev ied on real prop erty within the Dis trict
based on the value of land and im prove ments on each prop erty. Those taxes
would be in ad di tion to cur rent prop erty taxes on real prop erty within the Dis trict.
The amount of tax needed each year will de pend upon the amount needed to re pay
out stand ing prin ci pal and in ter est. The Dis trict’s Tax Rate State ment, which follows
this anal y sis, es ti mates the high est tax rate nec es sary to fund the bonds is $30 per
$100,000 of as sessed value. Those tax lev ies are pro jec tions, and could go up or
down, de pend ing on a num ber of fac tors in clud ing the tim ing and amount of bond
sales, and changes in as sessed prop erty val ues in the Dis trict.
If all bonds are sold, the to tal debt ser vice (in clud ing prin ci pal and in ter est) will be
$19,400,000. The tax will raise ap prox i mately $556,000 an nu ally.
A “yes” vote on Mea sure K will au tho rize the Dis trict to is sue the bonds and levy
taxes to pay for the in debt ed ness. A “no” vote on Mea sure K will not au tho rize
ei ther the is su ance of bonds or the as so ci ated levy of taxes.

Measure K Tax Rate Statement

TAX RATE STATEMENT — MEASURE K
An elec tion will be held in the Oak Grove Un ion El e men tary School Dis trict (the
“Dis trict”) on No vem ber 6, 2018, to au tho rize the sale of up to $9.5 mil lion in bonds
of the Dis trict to fi nance school fa cil i ties as de scribed in the mea sure. If such bonds
are au tho rized and sold, prin ci pal and in ter est on the bonds will be pay able only
from the pro ceeds of ad valorem tax lev ies made upon the tax able prop erty in the
District. The following information is provided in compliance with Sections
9400-9404 of the Elec tions Code of the State of Cal i for nia. Such in for ma tion is
based upon the best es ti mates and pro jec tions pres ently avail able from of fi cial
sources, upon ex pe ri ence within the Dis trict, and other de mon stra ble fac tors.
Based upon the fore go ing and pro jec tions of the Dis trict’s as sessed val u a tion, the
following information is provided:
1. The best es ti mate of the av er age an nual tax rate which would be re quired
to be lev ied to fund this bond is sue over the en tire du ra tion of the bond
debt ser vice, based on a pro jec tion of as sessed val u a tions avail able at
the time of fil ing of this state ment, is $0.03 per $100 of as sessed val u a tion
(or $30 per $100,000 of as sessed value). The fi nal fis cal year in which it is
an tic i pated that the tax will be col lected is 2052-53.
2. The best es ti mate of the high est tax rate which would be re quired to be
lev ied to fund this bond is sue, based on a pro jec tion of as sessed valuations
avail able at the time of fil ing of this state ment, is $0.03 per $100 of as -
sessed val u a tion (or $30 per $100,000 of as sessed value). It is es ti mated
that such rate would be lev ied start ing in fis cal year 2019-20 and following.
3. The best es ti mate of the total debt service, including the principal and interest,
that would be re quired to be re paid if all the bonds are is sued and sold is
approximately $19,400,000.
Voters should note the es ti mated tax rate is based on the as sessed value (not market
value) of tax able prop erty on the County’s of fi cial tax rolls. In ad di tion, tax pay ers
el i gi ble for a prop erty tax ex emp tion, such as the home owner’s ex emp tion, will be
taxed at a lower ef fec tive tax rate than de scribed above. Prop erty own ers should
con sult their own prop erty tax bills and tax ad vi sors to de ter mine their prop erty’s
as sessed value and any ap pli ca ble tax ex emp tions.
The at ten tion of all vot ers is di rected to the fact that the fore go ing in for ma tion is
based upon pro jec tions and es ti mates only, which amounts are not max i mum
amounts and durations and are not bind ing upon the Dis trict. The actual debt service,
tax rates and the years in which they will ap ply may vary from those used to pro vide
the es ti mates set forth above, due to fac tors such as vari a tions in the tim ing of bond
sales, the par amount of bonds sold and mar ket in ter est rates avail able at the time
of each sale, ac tual as sessed val u a tions over the term of the bonds, and other fac -
tors. The date and amount of bonds sold at any given time will be de ter mined by the
Dis trict based on the need for pro ject funds and other con sid er ations. The ac tual
in ter est rates at which the bonds will be sold will de pend on con di tions in the bond
mar ket at the time of sale. Ac tual fu ture as sessed val u a tions will de pend upon the
amount and value of tax able prop erty within the Dis trict as de ter mined by the
County As ses sor in the an nual as sess ment and the equalization process.
